Chronic Dry Eyes & Light Sensitivity

Chronic dry eyes and light sensitivity seem to concur.  This is particularly bothersome for driving during the day or go outdoors.

Light sensitivity is also the first sign of recovery while taking TheraLife Eye during dry eye recovery. 

Normal eyes are sensitive to the sudden changes of bright light, but it goes away within a few minutes.

In addition to chronic dry eyes, light sensitivity could also mean other eye and central nervous system disorders such as uveitis (inflammation of the uvea) or meningitis ( infection of the brain).  However, light sensitivity is an integral part of chronic dry eye syndrome.

Light sensitivity is an abnormal sensitivity to either artificial or natural light.

The severity of photophobia  are defined as:
1. Mild- which means wearing sunglasses in certain lighting helps your eyes feel better., and that is all you need.
2. Severe – where  you avoid light as much as possible, including keeping your eyes covered in any lighted situations, very common in chronic dry eyes. This makes driving or going outdoors very difficult.  Eye pain is often involved.

Common Causes of Photophobia.

  • chronic dry eyes.
  • inflammation of the iris, the cornea, or the conjunctiva (conjunctivitis, or pinkeye),
Sudden sensitivity to light that is painful and causes you to close your eyes or needing sunglasses when you are indoors may be a sign of uveitis or meningitis.  Fever, stiff neck, and vomiting may indicate a more serious infection in the central nervous system – e.g. meningitis.  See your health professionals right away. 

How can TheraLife Help?
